Good evening , this is my first post:

Paypal reverse by credit card : as the money is chargedback it can be chargedback by the legal owner of the credit card that also bought you bitcoins ( in this case Paypal can give the data of the client and a case can be opened ) or by a stolen credit card that was used to buy bitcoins ( in this case Paypal should pay as they accepted the credit card ) .

Is there any lawer who can do the work of the case and get payed only if the case is won?

Thanks



Money sent through PayPal and any other money transfer service that accepts credit cards can be easily reversed by the sender, even after several weeks. Therefore, you should only accept PayPal in trades with people you trust very highly.

This is why newbies are not likely to sell their PayPal USD for bitcoins successfully.

Some other services that are not totally safe:
- Bank transfers (ACH, etc.) except wire transfers
- Most gift cards.
- Moneypak
- AlertPay
- Paysafecards
- Dwolla
- Western Union (they reportedly will sue the recipient to recover money in some cases)

I never heard that Western Union is reversible? I even tried once to return my founds, no way.

What then they other best option to use fiat to buy coins/bitcoins then?

The best option is a personal meeting and cash-to-coins exchange. Much better than any of the services.

If you pickup your funds and transactions is between other countries, I don't believe there is much that can be done.

I would just use an exchange that accept credit cards If I were you, something like Coinmama or Coinbase should do the trick.

When I sell something using paypal, so many sales being reversed due to "credit card fraud" and I never get refund. That is all I get for their ridiculous fees
